Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder means that different people will find different things beautiful and that the differences of opinion don’t matter greatly.

True statement, eh? It can be applied to many things, thats the thing with like…views. So, it seems around lately there, along with the “do you admit fandom” stuff and all of that that is going around, but what I see is the whole talk about mature anime.

I will take a firm standing that, yes, there is mature anime. Though the problem comes into play when you try to list any. This is why I defined Eye of the Beholder. This is what really comes down to making the decision. Really anything can be a serious anime, I mean I’m sure people could tell me the depth of -insert series here-, but does that make it serious to everybody? Of course not.

Then really, content doesn’t really add to make a series mature or not. Or more or less it depends on the definition of mature. Does it count as audience targeted, content, or something else? Yet again, Eye of the Beholder. I mean I see Lain as a mature anime, while I know people will be like “wtf?!” to that.

Really, yes most anime is geared toward a young audience.  I’m not trying to say that isn’t true.  Though really people can have mature conversations about stuff that isn’t mature.  So where does that fit in the mix…I have no clue.  So,  there is my 2 cents.  The whole point was to say that mature anime is out there, and/or mature talks or whatever can come out of any anime.
